This weekend, Aaron Sorkin may well collect an Oscar or two for savaging the reputation of Mark Zuckerberg. But it's worth noting that Facebook has, in the last three weeks, done more to further freedom and democracy than Hollywood has done in the last one hundred years.
As the people of Tunisia, Egypt, and soon Libya can attest, their liberation is due not to leftist think-tanking or rightist bomb-dropping, but to the simple power of free communication and popular will.
And, having understood the misery of life without freedoms, they rightly rejoice and cling sweetly to a life with them. If only Americans could see as clearly.
Renew the Patriot Act? Sure, why not. Persecute Julian Assange? You bet. Highest incarceration rate in the world? Yep, that's us.
Land of the free, baby. You still drinking it?

Forget Assange, his big business movie deal and his $1,500,000 corporate book deal (some rebel, what a sell-out), instead read a book that’s really been BANNED like “America Deceived II” by a real rebel who the media hates, E.A. Blayre III.

You go drunk-ass, Harvard college boy-genius, pooooter network geek nerd extraordinaire getting even with a girl who can't recognize genius when it is taking her on a date....... you go! The Lord (and maybe Allah and Yahweh) sure moves in mysterious ways, don't he?
"But it's worth noting that Facebook has, in the last three weeks, done more to further freedom and democracy than Hollywood has done in the last one hundred years."
God moves in a mysterious way
His wonders to perform;
He plants His footsteps in the sea
And rides upon the storm.
Deep in unfathomable mines
Of never failing skill
He treasures up His bright designs
And works His sovereign will.
Ye fearful saints, fresh courage take;
The clouds ye so much dread
Are big with mercy and shall break
In blessings on your head.
Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,
But trust Him for His grace;
Behind a frowning providence
He hides a smiling face.
His purposes will ripen fast,
Unfolding every hour;
The bud may have a bitter taste,
But sweet will be the flower.
Blind unbelief is sure to err
And scan His work in vain;
God is His own interpreter,
And He will make it plain.
